Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been coming to Maui for over 30 years, sometimes 2-4 times per year, and have stayed at all the different resorts from Wailea to Kapalua. I stumled across this property a few years ago, and now make spend my valuable vacation time at this property. The Direct Oceanfront View perspective is just Incredible and the Value for a 1 Bedroom place with a full kitchen washer and dryer makes this a very comfortable place to stay. Well worth the money.

Never again--do not stay here!! Pictures do not accurately show this condo

  • 1 of 5

This "5 star renovation" was a joke. While there were high end materials used, the workmanship is very sloppy. The "fresh paint" was spilled over mismatched baseboards and metal window frames, over light switches, and drips had run down the walls. Interior door frames are falling apart.

The tile floor installation was not complete, with exposed subfloor in the kitchen and at the washer/dryer. The cabinetry was not finished, with the blind corner next to the fridge left open. This blind corner was used as a dump for the reno materials, with broken particleboard and an empty green beauti-tone paint can visible in this space!!!!!

The kitchen was a joke. The fridge was too big for the space and blocked access to some of the drawers and cabinets. The sink plug did not fit, so the sink could not hold water to wash dishes. The toaster did not work.

There was not enough space for a dining table. There are so many sofas in the condo that the eating area had only a wobbly outdoor bistro table with seating for 2 (there were three of us). If we wanted to eat together inside, we had to drag in the lanai bistro table and chair. (Then if we wanted to sit together on the lanai, we had to drag them back outside). Plus we had to look at the exposed dryer hoses and messy paint of the washer-dryer area while eating. We also had to be careful not to hit our heads on the ceiling fan, because the dining table is crowded out of position by an excess sofa, so is not centered under the fixture.

The lights were also run by remote, which in the dining area had a dead specialty battery. I had to switch out the bedroom remote battery to the dining area and back again every time I wanted to use a light.

The condo is cluttered with extranous junk. One closet was filled with reno tools and materials. The dressing area closet was filled with ironing boards, laundry baskets, TV tables, vacuums to the point you had no space to hang dresses. In the bedroom dresser, there was an unhooked DVD player, 7 remotes, broken binoculars, and the base to a cordless phone (but no phone that fit the base).

The mattress is lumpy and certainly not new.

The view from the lanai was the best part of this condo, even with the washed away beach and the sandbag sea wall. I think the view from the bedroom would have been great if the windows were not too dirty to see through, and the sliding track too full of dead bugs and dust to risk opening. Unfortunately space limits me from further description.

Great location, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo to kick off our stay in Maui. The location was perfect (check out Maui Brewing Co in the plaza in front of the condo and the coffee shop in the same plaza. The whalers market was also very convenient). The check in and check out instructions were both very helpful - communication overall was very professional. The view from the condo balcony was stunning and our favorite part. It's extremely hard to find a condo as close to the water as this place. Other units in this condo building felt more outdated - it as great to see this unit kept more updated. Our only critique on the place was that the building felt a little outdated and it seems there was a wall built by the pool that obstructs the view of the ocean. It seems maybe they're having some issues with the tide and shore - there were a lot of sand bags by the water as well. This by no means affected our great time and we'd again highly recommend the place!

Great Value for the Price

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Royal Kahana in John's condo was great. John was kind and responded in a timely manner to all our questions. The building itself is a little dated, but that doesn't really matter when this condo has been renovated so nicely. The balcony is only 15-20 feet from the ocean. Unfortunately the beach that was once there has eroded away, but Kaanapali beach is only a 5 minute drive away which we were pleased to be so close to.

Plenty of towels provided; both beach and bath. The bathroom felt very clean. The kitchen could use a little more supplies (barbecue equipment in particular) if your family is planning on cooking , but definitely enough to get by. No cooler provided but you can buy a disposable one across the street. The beds we used were both very comfortable as well as the pillows. We loved having the beach equipment in the condo: beach chairs, snorkel gear (two sets), umbrella, boogie boards, etc. Some gear needs to be replaced as it seems past renters were pretty harsh on it (pair of flippers broken, one of the beach chairs ripped apart, etc.). BEWARE OF THE YELLOW BOOGIE BOARD WITH BLACK DESIGN!! I used this board and once I was done I realized my entire torso was completely black from the ink rubbing off; thankfully came off with soap and water but not without a lot of scrubbing! There was also a pair of binoculars by the TV but they were broken. Don't know if they can be repaired but if you can fix them, we think you could do some whale watching off the balcony.

One thing that does need to be fixed in my opinion is the sealing with the front door, sliding door, and a couple windows. It was windy while we were there (pretty typical in Maui) but the shape of the building funnels the wind through the hallways to the rooms, and the seals aren't tight on the doors and this created a very irksome, high-pitch, whistling noise when the doors were closed, similar to the sound a teapot makes when the water is boiling (loud enough to keep you up at night). Sound came specifically from underneath at the bottom of the front door and the entire crack when the sliding door is closed and some windows. We had to always have the sliding door cracked and put pillows at the bottom of the front door to seal it and stop the noise. Since we weren't at the condo much is wasn't that big a deal but had we been relaxing more at the condo, it would be enough to bring our stay down a star.

Overall great value and quality with an ocean front view.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo and had a fabulous week. It was so nice to be able to sit on the lanai and watch and listen to the waves coming in. We would turn off the ac st night and listen to the waves while falling asleep. The condo is set up perfectly! We cooked at the condo daily and were able to do laundry. It is only a short drive to Kaanapali or Lahaina where you can do lots of shopping and find restaurants. The only downside to this condo was the pool. Unfortunately they are working on the beach and seawall so the pool area had construction equipment and noise. We would still definitely stay here again!
